About the Channel

Welcome to 7mate.

Take a seat and relax. Go ahead, kick back and put your feet on the table – it’s OK, you’re with mates now. No need to wash your hands. No need to take your shoes off. It’s time for you to reclaim the lounge room. 7mate is here, and it’s here for you.

In fact, why don’t you say hello to a few of the mates you’ll be seeing around here, starting with the funny ones: All new, first run episodes of FAMILY GUY, AMERICAN DAD, and EASTBOUND AND DOWN lead 7mate’s primetime comedy schedule. THAT 70’S SHOW, HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER, MY WIFE AND KIDS, ACCORDING TO JIM and GARY UNMARRIED round out the laughs.

Reality TV doesn’t have to be girly TV. We’ve got the US ratings hit JERSEY SHORE, along with PIMP MY RIDE. We’ve also got MONSTER GARAGE with Jesse G. James.

Awesome documentaries and factual hits on 7mate will see series such as MEGA STRUCTURES, MIGHTY SHIPS, BUILT FROM DISASTER, AIR CRASH INVESTIGATIONS and MYTHBUSTERS in primetime.

Friday night is the home for big ACTION MOVIES and AFL then gear up for the V8’S LIVE on Saturdays.

So as you can see, there’s plenty of great stuff to watch here, and it’s just for you.

We think you’ll like it here.

7mate - man’s best friend.

Click here if you’d like more detail on our programs and scheduled times.
To receive 7mate from 25 September, you will need to tune into channel 73 on an HD capable Digital TV, PVR or set top box. If you have an analogue television you will need to connect your TV to an HD capable Digital set top box, PVR, or Digital recorder and tune in to channel 73.

''Until the switch-off of analogue at the end of 2013 each commercial television licensee is limited by legislation to one SD multichannel and one HD multichannel. These were the changes to the Broadcasting Services Act introduced in 2006.

After switchover, each broadcaster may transmit as many channels as they like but clearly this is limited by the amount of spectrum they have available to them. The allocation to each commercial broadcaster of 7MHz is pretty much filled up by two SD channels and one HD.

Therefore like Nine and Ten (from next year), Seven has opted to maximise the use of our available spectrum to provide diversity of programming for our viewers. Viewers will still be able to find a number of fantastic programme options presented in rich HD on our new multichannel 7mate. We encourage them to check it out.''

    7 Mate, lets get really. You NFL broadcast is sucking eggs, we are over the Jarrad Hayne plane and can't bare to watch 49ers games every week to watch a lousy uncompetitive team that will be in last place by the end of the season. AFC North division was the most competitive and exciting division last year and you missed out. 3 of the 4 teams went to the playoffs and it went down to the wire. If you want to do us football fans a favour, starting looking at games that make a difference.

    Is there any news on whether we'll be getting a HD simulcast of the AFL Grand Final on 7Mate this year? I understand you are heading towards HD for the main channel in the long term, but I understand that will take some time to get up. In the meantime I feel like a HD simulcast surely would be the best solution. Any chance that could get up for 2015?

    Hey I watch the amazing race and you skipped the last episodes from the season with max and Katie, the roller derby mums, the country singers and the hockey players. We were down to the final four and today you have started a new season. Get your act together, pathetic programming

    NFL season is nearly on us. BUT I haven't seen any advertising/promo's for it yet! Should I be getting worried?

    Do we get to the NFL Pre Season games this year? Starts Sunday 9th August, which is the 10th here in Oz, but nothing on the schedule. +1 to bring back the Today show, while it has moved to 7two, it's on later now at 10am, rather than 9am :(

    Please bring back NBC Today Show. There are enough kids programmes already. Much more interesting to watch a news based show giving a different spin on what is currently happening around the world. Come on 7 Mate we don't have to dumb down to pre-school, do we?

    What's happened to NBC Today show, week days-daily from 9-11am???? I'm disappointed to find kid programming has replaced it.
